Cloud Security Assessment

Do you know your underlying risks?

Cloud Covered

HALOCK’s Cloud Security Assessment gives you insight on your risks. The assessment provides a review of Azure, AWS, and Google (GCP) cloud environments to identify risk and recommends how to remediate them. HALOCK combines manual analysis of these cloud platforms using the applicable CIS benchmarks combined with the Tenable Cloud Security solution. Clients receive a comprehensive look at cloud environments, allowing them to better enhance their security. HALOCK will provide analysis for the following security areas:

Identification of:

  • Assets related to all user, computer, network, data, management and security resources.
  • Potential toxic combinations of access privileges, non-secure configurations, and vulnerabilities.
